"The Bitter Suite II: Embrace" as written by and Casey Blue Crescenzo....
Darkness, hesitation
I fell into her arms
Breathe in, this is amazing
Breathe out, this is amazing
She removed her clothes and all of the world shined
Now that we're alone all of the world shines
First hot breath, then cold hands
Intrusion, but aware
The fire inside was all light and she bloomed
And I never knew life could ever be this good
The distant sighs, the clothes on the floor
The bedding a mess, she sings for more

We fall beneath the sea in the back of our hearts and fail to breathe until we resurface again

She had the summer's smile with winter's skin
And all along with words beyond me she welcomed me in

We fall beneath the sea in the back of our hearts and fail to breathe until we resurface again

    General CommentI'm surprised there aren't more comments here. This is possibly my favorite Dear Hunter song. The build up is just epic.

    General CommentHe's still talking about Ms. Leading. the 1st part of Bitter Suite he talks about how he met her and she invited him in. This one talks about what went on once he got in the doors.
    I love the line 'She had the summer's smile with winter's skin and all along with words beyond me she welcomed me in'. I think what it's saying is on the outside she's just playing the part or going through the motion but the summer smile and welcoming words shows that maybe she really did have a heart and maybe felt something for him that usually isn't felt...

    Anyway, I love this song.

    General CommentI love the line "she had the Summer's smile with Winter's skin, and all along with words beyond me she welcomed me in" as well. I interpretted it as more of a description of how inviting she acted and looked; she had a warm smile and winter's skin or fair skin (this is the late 1800s i'm assuming and pale was still in at the time.)

    General CommentAh, no, apparently, it is a word. In fact, it's more frequently used than shone, whether correct or not.

    So then, Bitter Suite Pt. II was actually P&P or Ms. Leading talking to our protagonist: You gotta pay, man!

    Here we have the real embrace. So whoever said in the last song that Pt. II was about the sex, this may actually be closer to that.

    General CommentI stumbled upon this band just by looking through myspace accounts.. I'm happy I did.

    This.. and The Bitter Suite I & II.. are my favorite from this group by far. I still need to explore more of them.
